This is an iMac right? Which means it is an all-in-one computer. Which means, like all iMacs, it is probably very difficult to repair. Some of the older iMacs had a port in the back for an external monitor. If yours does try that. I assume this has an LCD screen. If it does and if that has gone bad and if it could be replaced, it would probably cost more than the unit is worth.

First (and this is going to sound stupid) check that it has both power and is connected to the computer. Second, if it turns on check that it is recieving a signal. For video cards, most computers keep the default display adapter as the built in one and you have to manually change it in your CMOS settings. Third, make sure that your computer or screen isn't burnt out. This can happen and is noticible if your screen says nothing or your computer doesn't output a signal. If you aren't sure check your screen with someone elses computer.

It's mostly likely a bad capacitor in the main power supply of your monitor. If you're brave enough to dismantle it, look for capacitors that're "crowned", and sometimes even rupture from overheating in such circumstances. You can order replacements from Digi-Key if you can figure out which might be your problem, but I'm not sure I recommend you try this unless you have at least SOME soldering/desoldering skills or a friend who does. You COULD wind up worse off. It's up to you, only YOU know your personal skill level for such tasks. And do I need to say, UNPLUG it before dismantiling? :)

Rear view mirror too dark for 05 sport track ford


I own on 04 and if its like mine, it automatically dims itself when lights are behind you. If its only too dark then... just turn it off. If it remains too dark all the time, I'd call your dealer and see what they suggest.

Dell172fpb 17" monitor


Self-Test Feature Check (STFC) Your monitor provides a self-test feature that allows you to check whether your monitor is functioning properly. If your monitor and computer are properly connected but the monitor screen remains dark, run the monitor self-test by performing the following steps:
  1. Turn off both your computer and the monitor.
  2. Unplug the video cable from the back of the computer. To ensure proper Self-Test operation, remove Analog (blue connector) cables from the back of computer.
  3. Turn on the monitor. The floating 'Dell - self-test Feature Check' dialog box should appear on-screen (against a black background) if the monitor cannot sense a video signal and is working correctly. While in self-test mode, the power LED remains green and the self-test pattern will scroll through the screen continually.
  4. Turn off your monitor and reconnect the video cable; then turn on both your computer and the monitor.
If your monitor screen remains blank after you use the previous procedure, check your video controller and computer system; your monitor is functioning properly.

Thanks

Dark screen on HP Photosmart E327


Same problem here, i upload the pics on my computer, then i turn off my cam, few minutes later try to turn it on, but no success, still have the blackscreen. I try to change the battery, reset it (15s without the battery, another 2 hours but no success), format the memory card (even without the memory the cam doesn't turn on).
